    My computer (running windows XP and connected to the internet with a D Link USB adapter) refuses to load any webpages: despite showing full signal strength and connection in both the D Link settings and the windows XP wireless panel.

    I am able to ping websites and other computers in the house (all of which are able to access the internet) but no pages load in any browser I try.

    The only antivirus is windows security essentials and the windows firewall is disabled. Any help is greatly appreciated! :eek:

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.
